Last Chance to Join the Guild’s Online Seminar Tomorrow – ‘How the industry is responding to Covid-19’

The Guild is pleased to offer a broad range of events and trainings for our members. While our regular training courses and events have been suspended until further notice, we plan to run some briefer online seminars in the coming weeks.


Online Seminar |  How the industry is responding to Covid-19

Wednesday, 27th May from 8 – 9pm BST

Online via Zoom

Join Katie Wiles, CAMRA’s Senior Communications Manager, and Neil Walker, Head of Comms & Marketing at SIBA, both Guild Directors, to learn more about how their organisations are responding to the Covid-19 situation.

They’ll discuss how the industry is adapting (delivery/ takeaway), what they are concerned about as lockdown eases (impact of social distancing / consumers afraid to return / fall out of habit with drinking outside the home), and where we go from here (some of the industry responses to date and what we should be focusing on now).

To RSVP, email and you will be provided with the Zoom link. Please note we will be limiting the seminar to 25 members.


Online Seminar |  The ups and downs of publishing free pub magazines with Brett Laniosh

Wednesday, 3rd June from 8 – 9pm BST

Online via Zoom

Brett Laniosh has been involved in editing and publishing pub magazines since 1995 when he launched the CAMRA magazine for Worcestershire. He now designs and publishes (on a commercial basis) magazines for CAMRA branches. In this event, he will share his experience of working with and supporting volunteer editors, advertisers and writers and his thoughts on the future of pub magazines.

To RSVP, email and you will be provided with the Zoom link. Please note we will be limiting the seminar to 25 members.


Future seminars:

Are you an experienced member willing to volunteer an hour of your time to share your insight on blogging, editing, writing press releases, podcasting, photography, beer judging or tasting or any other relevant skillset to our members?

Please contact Guild Chair Pete ( or Guild Secretary Natalya ( with your interest and we’ll schedule you in.

In normal circumstances, the Guild pays standard going rate to tutors and presenters and we’d never ask Guild members to work for free, but in this instance, we are asking for members to volunteer their time, if able, to share their skills with other members.

Any questions, please contact
